A Bowl Full of Stars and a New Do

It's Thursday already, just one more day until the weekend and I've finally made it to the bottom of my to-do list so I'm hoping for a few days of taking it easy.

It's been a whole week since I have sewn at all and I miss it. Not to mention I haven't had any time to blog and I'm missing that too!
The above picture is the latest stitchery that I finished last week or the week before. *See, I'm way behind!*
It's another Chestnut Junction pattern and it's called Bowl Full of Stars. If you've never checked her site out you really ought to. She makes some really cute patterns and her prices are great! She's also a local gal from our area so I think that's pretty special too!

What do you think of Katie's new do?
Haircuts were on our to-do list this week. I've been thinking about cutting hers for a while now but couldn't get up enough nerve to do so. *What if we didn't like it short?*
I figured we wouldn't know until we tried it and she was willing to try so we did.
Everyone loves it. It makes her look bright and alive and so much older. It just makes me realize that our littlest one is growing up way to quickly. ;(
Well I'm heading outdoors for a bit to enjoy this early COOL fall weather. It's only in the 50's today and going into the low 40's tonight...Brrr... big change but one I am ready for!
Hope you all are enjoying your day!

I love the patterns from Chestnut Junction too. Stitcheries are one of my favorite crafts, after cross stitch.

Katie's hair cut looks great!

We had a cold front on Wed and it was 40 most of the day and rainy. It also snowed a little on the mountain next to us. Today was in the 50s and rainy. Someone told me it's gonna be in the 80's next week (I hope not). Very strange summer weather! I can't wait for fall.

Katie's new do is adorable! It suits her well; good job Jessica! I'm so jealous; it's almost 9:30 and it's still 80 degrees and muggy tonight. I'm so ready for some nice, cool fall temps. Send some my way!!!!
